We head back to 2010 for this video— what a year it was for Danny Gokey! He returned to his hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to headline the Briggs & Stratton stage at Summerfest. The crowd to see Danny was HUGE as he returned to his hometown– just a year after his 3rd place finish on “American Idol”. You can tell in this video how emotionally moved Danny is by the crowd response and their singing every word of his first single! We are glad to see that Danny has re-introduced MBDAAM to his current tour set list.
We missed it!

I was there among the thousands of fans. Here are three photos from that night. (ERIKA with Danny!!!) Please share your memories, favorite video or photo if you were there, too!
About “My Best Days”:
It was released on March 2, 2010. It debuted on the Billboard album charts at number four, and it netted Danny the best opening-week sales by a debut country male in 18 years and the highest debut of digital downloads sold by any new country artist ever. He was the opening act on Sugarland‘s Incredible Machine tour which began in April 2010.
